School Closure – Working at Home

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you know, from Monday, Primary 3 will be doing their classwork at home for the foreseeable future. I have made a class forum on Google Classroom. Every day, I will be posting (differentiated) work for the children to do. It is important that they do this work every day. They can either do it as a Word document (typed) and post it on Google Classroom for me to read. Or they can send me photos of it. I will comment on the work that they have done.

I will be on Google Classroom every weekday from 9am – 12pm. I will also check it in the evenings. The children (or you) can write to me if you need help or if you have any questions.

Please find attached two documents from Mrs Walker giving you more information.

Thank you,

Miss Wilson

P3 Easter Assembly – Hat/Bonnet Competition!

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you know, Primary 3 are doing an Easter Assembly on Friday 3rd April, to which you are all invited.

As part of this, I have given the class some additional homework, which I hope will be good fun – to make an Easter hat or bonnet.

All children will be wearing their hats during the assembly so it is important that everyone participates and that all hats are brought into school no later than Monday 30th March.

A prize will be given out for the four most creative and imaginative hats in the class (two prizes for girls and two prizes for boys). The prizes will be large chocolate Easter eggs! Mrs Walker and Mrs Fjellroth will be judging the hats during the assembly on Friday 3rd April and announcing the winners at the end of the day.

I have attached some photographs of typical Easter hats and bonnets below which you can use for some ideas. Alternatively, you can design your own.

Please note that you do not have to make a hat from scratch. Decorating existing hats is fine, as long as the children have been creative and have produced a hat that represents Easter in some way. The hat needs to be sturdy enough to stay on the child’s head throughout the assembly.

Thank you for your support – and have fun!

World Book Day!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for all your effort and support for our World Book Day – the children looked fantastic in their costumes today and we all had great fun!

As mentioned in the reading logs, we are currently doing a new unit of work called ‘The Big Writing Adventure’. Every Thursday we will be writing a text based upon the work done in class that week. For this, your child will be asked to think about some ideas at home on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, in preparation for their writing on Thursdays. In this, please talk to them about their ideas and help them to plan what they would like to write. They can make jottings or write a plan in their homework books, which they will be able to use in class.

Thank you for your support – it is very much appreciated.

Fernielea Ceilidh and Our Visit to Summerhill Care Home

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you will know, Fernielea had its annual Burns’ Event – a fantastic ceilidh on Friday 24th January. Please find attached a photo of P3W singing their Skye Boat song. They sang magnificently and all looked wonderful in their handmade tam-o-shanters! The following Monday (27.01.20), we visited Summerhill Care Home and gave a performance to the residents and staff. We sang some Scottish songs, recited poetry and showed them our written descriptions of Bonnie Prince Charlie sailing over the sea to Skye. We took several photos to mark the occasion – I hope that you enjoy them!

Thank you for your continued support!

Chickens in P3W…

Good afternoon, everybody,


Just an update to let you know that sadly, we will not be getting our class chickens until May. It seems that there is a problem concerning the egg supply in the Aberdeenshire area; however, we will still be doing our topic on chickens in February, which means that we will be the resident experts when we get the eggs in May!

We will still be having an Open Morning when the chickens arrive, to which you are all invited.

I will share more information nearer the time.

Thank you for your support,

Miss Wilson

Burns Event at Fernielea!

Dear Parents and Carers,


Fernielea is having a Burns Event on Friday 24th January. In P3, the children have taken home this week, a poem to learn and recite for the event. It is called ‘Coulter’s Candy’ – a well-known Scottish verse and song. Please practice the poem with your child, if possible; learning the poem is an additional piece of homework for the next two weeks. We have gone over it in class, analysing the structure of the poem, the language, as well as taking about how to memorise poetry.


Thank you – and a very happy Burns Night when it arrives!


Miss Wilson


Christmas at Fernielea!

During the last few weeks, we have been preparing for Christmas! We have made a display featuring a robin using leaves, red material and snowflakes; we have also been learning our songs and lines for ‘Sparkle’, our Christmas show! We have all enjoyed it very much and are proud of our achievements! Please see our photos below…

Have a lovely festive season – and all the best to you from Primary 3W. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!


Primary 3W Engineers!

This week at Fernielea, Primary 3W have been learning about being engineers! We have learnt that materials + an engineer = a product! Using the theme of ‘Goldilocks and the Three Bears’, we have been a civil engineer (designing Baby Bear’s den) and an agricultural engineer (looking at where porridge come from). We have also designed Baby Bear’s new garden and looked at what materials would be needed to keep a bowl of porridge hot! We have had great fun and have learnt a lot. Thank you to everyone who has helped us this week.
